Abstract

About the book:
In a knowledge-based economy, knowledge alone sustains competitive advantage, whether at an organizational or at a national level. Four structural forces drive economic transformation globally—revolutionary changes in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), rapid scientific and technological advances, increasing global competition, and shifting consumer demand. They also make knowledge a very important driver of competitive advantage The first of this two-part volume focuses on knowledge economy-related concepts and the challenges they present. This book is the second of a two-part volume which focuses on various countries’ transition towards a knowledge economy.
